Recent Shelter Island Heights reviews

  • Greenport Wedding Weekend

    "My wife and I and two friends stayed in this adorable house after visiting from Australia for a traditional Long Island wedding. The house was immaculately clean and the beds were great for sleeping. The owner left us detailed and helpful instructions and tips and was accommodating all through the process. There is nothing like getting a personal note when you first arrive to feel welcome. Close to restaurants and the ferry. Incredibly affordable as well. Thanks."

  • Charm, comfort, scenic beauty, and hospitality

    "I echo all the good things that the other reviewers have said about Lynne and the house, and add the following: Many thanks to Lynne for providing a list of what was in the kitchen before we arrived so that we could plan accordingly. I really wish other homeowners would follow this model of hospitality. It's so sane... To other guests: I recommend that you set up a separate receptacle each for paper, cardboard, plastic, and metal, and just separate as you go during your stay. If you have a dog, save one of the yellow shelter island garbage bags to collect your poop bags in. It will all make your life much easier with the tricky rules that the island has for trash. The layout of the house is good for together-time and alone-time. There's a door between the living room and the dining area, so chatters can sit in the dining room and chat without disturbing tv watchers in the living room (and vice versa). The kitchen has a bar/counter separating it from the dining room and another doorway off to the front entry and living room. If you have a dog or toddlers that benefit from a gate or two, this first floor layout is perfect for you. The study on the first floor has a trundle bed and its own doors out to the deck. There are two bedrooms upstairs as well, so introverts can easily escape to solitude. The deck is also well-designed for gating off. Another aspect of the house worth mentioning is the assortment of books on the shelves. Norton anthologies, John LeCarre novels, Sherlock Holmes, social commentaries, histories, and more. If you're a reader and you forgot your kindle, this house probably has something for you to curl up with and read (or re-read). We visited off-season never had to wait more than 5 minutes for a ferry (bring cash and take advantage of the same-day roundtrip tickets). A lot of the restaurants on Shelter Island and also in Greenport were closed, so our choices were limited. What was available is pricey, but good. Good burgers at the Shelter Island House Tavern for a reasonable price. Lunch at Stars Cafe, and dinner at the Red Maple. I also recommend taking a drive around the whole island to see the scenery and the gorgeous houses. Frontline your dog before coming. Tick warnings everywhere. Many many thanks to Lynne for being so gracious, communicative, and helpful. I hope we can return sometime. This is a wonderful house on a beautiful island."

  • Wonderful Vacation

    "We had an exceptional time at this waterfront home. We loved the view from the deck and ate all of our meals there.the new kitchen was easy to use and very spacious. the main room of the house had the views plus plenty of comfy seating for a number of people. The owners could not have been more helpful, as was the house manager.The big lawn was perfect for games and children loved running down to the beach. the house has plenty of space for a large family, but cozy enough for two. We would love to return! Super location"

  • Sweet and spotless

    "Flawlessly maintained. Owners were very welcoming— even gave us home-grown vegetables to grill! Nice property and good location on the island."
